I worked this out (with help from the previous version and the fantastic tab) by listening to James Mercer play it acoustically. I'm 100% certain that this is right. It sounds lovely with open chords, with the obvious exception being the F#, which is easiest (and sounds best) played at 2nd fret. I initially thought that the chord after the second E in the verse was E7sus4 02020x as in past and pending, but upon further listening, I'm sure it's just a D. E B E - D A "Howdy, lem," my grandpa said with his eyes closed E B E - D A wiping the eastbound dust from his sunburned brow A a life before doubt. Chorus: G A G A I smell the engine grease and mint the wind is blending G A D F# G under the moan of rotting elm in the silo floor D A Verse 2: E B E - D A Down a hill of pine tree quills we made our way E B E - D A to the bottom and the ferns where thick moss grows A beside a stream. Chorus: G A G A Under the rocks are snails and we can fill our pockets G A D F# G and let them go one by one all day in a brand new place D A Instrumental break x2 E B E-D A E B D A (play this variation on the verse chords twice) Chorus: G A G A You were no ordinary drain on her defenses G A D F# G and she was no ordinary girl Oh, Inverted World A G A if every moment of our lives were cradled softly A D in the hands of a strange and gentle child F# G I'd not roll my eyes E G so. E G Repeat until fade When James Mercer played this acoustically, he repeated the E and G at the end a few times then ended with E G A E which sounds really nice. As usual, Mercer does a lot of Hammer ons and pull offs, which you can add optionally (sounds great on the D chord just before the F# and on the A in the chorus) Furthermore, The E to D change is a quick one. The E and B chords are a bar each, whereas the E and D chords last half a bar each. Listen to the song if timing is an issue. I really hope this helps somebody out there play this fantastic song :D
